Proposed Changes to ELA and Math Standards Available for Public Comment:

Last week the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education voted to release for public comment new drafts of the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks for English Language Arts and Literacy (ELA/Literacy) and Mathematics. Comments may be made from December 1, 2016 through February 17, 2017 through an online survey. Educators interested in learning more about the proposed changes to the Frameworks are encouraged to check out the ELA/Literacy and Math Standards Review page on ESE’s website or sign up for one of ESE's Office Hours sessions scheduled throughout the comment period.

 Survey on History and Social Science Framework Revision:

As Massachusetts embarks on the revision of the 2003 Massachusetts History and Social Science Curriculum Framework, the Department encourages educators and others to offer comments on and suggested revisions to the current framework via a survey. The survey will take approximately 10–20 minutes to complete and will remain open until February 6, 2017.
